      Thanks. I do ok most years. I was hoping to do a bit better, but that Ang Lee was the upset for me (and many others, I’m sure)

    Aside from Director, you did a good job in the major categories.

    1. martymankins says:

      Thank you. As I mentioned to KevinAZ above, that was the upset.
